Cheerleading Courses in Sheffield!

This weekend we are proud to be holding 2 Cheerleading courses in Sheffield. Both of these courses will be held at the following address:

Hinde House School
Shiregreen Lane
S5 6AG


On Saturday 22nd August we will be running a Level 2 Cheerleading Basic Skills course, which will give our members the skills they need to improve their Cheer. This course will be followed by a Level 3 Basic Stunts course on Sunday 23rd August, to give our Cheerleaders the knowledge and health and safety training for safe stunt techniques – up to 2 levels high! Also taught on the course are key choreography moves. The Basic Stunts course is a fantastic training programme for coaches as they will even learn how to create lesson plans for Cheer training!

Holding these 2 courses across one weekend is a great opportunity for our UKCA members to build their Cheerleading skills and achievements all in the space of just 2 days!

All of our members who are successful on the course will receive UKCA Certificates of Qualification to help them going forward in their Cheerleading careers.


We have many more courses taking place throughout 2015 and we cannot wait to have more qualified Cheerleaders active across the UK. Train with us to learn practical and theoretical Cheerleading skills. After all, you can’t learn to become a Cheerleading coach sat around a table!

See you soon.
